TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- Hundreds of people gathered at the Donald Tucker Civic Center for Florida State University's Fan Day 2015.

The event was a perfect way for fans to get up close and personal with the football team and staff as they prepare to kick off the football season. Fans drove from near and far to attend the celebration, meet players and coaches and also grab a picture or two. 

One fan drove hundreds of miles. "I drove six hours to be here to support FSU football. So anytime I'm here or I make plans to be here I support the school as well as the players, so win lose or draw Nole Nation forever," said Anthony Holmes. 

For some people, football may be just a sport. But to FSU fans, it's a way of life. 

Jessica Johnson explained how it's a family tradition. "I've been coming to games since I was two years old and I don't miss a game. My grandmother has been a booster for forty something years and goes with me. She takes me around the country following Florida State so I really love this team."

The first game of the season will be September 5th against the Texas State Bobcats.
